Mona Lisa challenge # 10
The challenge over at Artful Times this week is Mona Lisa, challenge sponsored by Oyster Stamps.
Here is my creation that I will enter. Rather than just use the image of the Mona Lisa, I thought of using Da Vinci as my inspiration. I also decided to try and only use 3 main colours..... for the background I have used , Antique Linen, Old Paper and Tea Dye for Tim Holtz in the distress Stains and ink. Stenciled with abit on sequin waste and then stamped the Da Vinci stamps with Tea Dye, plus Da Vinici in black, which I have had for years, from Rubbadubbadoo, who no longer operate in the UK. I think they are now in NZ. The frame in one of the Spellbinders. I then coloured a stampbord square with versamark chalk colours then stamped Mona, a Tim Holtz stamp, with archival black. Edged the square with black pen. Mounted onto black card and main card is gold,
